If you are confident that you have selected a font that you have installed on the machine, you may have a font style selected that isn't available. For example, I see that the style you have set is "Normal", but it may need to be "Regular". This can happen usually when you switch from one font to another and the assigned style isn't present in the new font.

You can make a portable SVG file by converting the text to a vector path. Select the text object, then go to the menu Path → Object to Path. (You could also use Stroke to Path, depending upon what you want to do). Of course as a vector, the text will no longer b be editable as text, but that may not matter as much to you as being able to have your SVG ...

As far as I know there is no easy way to compare all aspects of corporate designs of multiple companies in one place. (If I understood your question correctly). I suggest you use Trello. This is a free online tool, really simple to use. It consists of cards arranged in tables (you define number of tables and cards on each one, as well as their order) where ...

Adobe TypeKit uses @font-face to define the fonts. It actually uses Javascript to dynamically link the correct fonts using the best method for the browser and OS in question and fires custom Javascript events when your fonts are loaded for example, but the actual fonts themselves are eventually loaded in the same way as you would load your own custom web-...

For ligatures to be supported in an OpenType font, two things need to be there: the actual ligature glyphs (which you can check by scrolling through the glyph table with a symbol picker etc.) and a glyph substitution table that tells software to replace a sequence of characters by a ligature. There’s a handy piece of software called DTL OTMaster Light (free,...

Segoe UI (as @Supuhstar already suggested) - An overall great sans but the best italic variant of any sans, commercial or system included, hands down. Bold works comfortably in display sizes since Segoe UI Black is not system.

Combining characters and positioning OpenType fonts have a Glyph Positioning table (GPOS) which is used to provide precise control over glyph placement for sophisticated text layout and rendering in different scripts. The GPOS table can position glyphs in a number of ways. From the Microsoft OpenType Specification: The GPOS table supports eight types ...

Web-fonts There are 2 ways you can go about defining web-fonts with @font-face. The first, and probably most common (I believe most generators, Font Squirrel for example, will output this) is to define each font file (i.e. each weight and style) with its own unique family name. @font-face { font-family: 'YourFont'; src: url('your_font.ttf') format('...

The only two options in illustrator for fonts in the "Save as SVG" dialog are "SVG" and "convert to outlines". The SVG option embeds the fonts, or the system fonts, which you can then swap out in the code with your custom web fonts using a little HTML and/or CSS. If the graphic and the text are not intertwined or overlapping, you could just do the graphic ...

Use a character style and set the scale appropriately. Place guides at the baseline and x-height of the base font to help you do the alignment. Then in the character style of the second font, under Advanced Character Formats, set an equal horizontal and vertical scale so that the x-heights align. For example: "Porttitor" is set in a different typeface with ...

I've been hunting for a good replacement for this. Open Sans, Source Sans Pro, and all the other popular sans-serif fonts on Google Fonts are really nothing like Avenir Next. Avenir Next is a thin font. I used this filtering on Google fonts to find similar thin sans-serif fonts. I found two: Heebo and Yantramanav. Using these with the Thin or Light style ...

Download Helvetica Neue instead :) http://thefonty.com/font/helvetica-neue-regular/download As the San Fransisco is based on Helvetica Neue, you will notice very little difference.

The prefix of nomial refers to the number of glyphs taking into account when determining kerning. Hence a binomial kerning table employs kerning pairs, while a polynomial kerning table considers kerning triplets, quadruplets, and so on. While this choice of words is somewhat justified by the Greek origin of binomial and polynomial meaning consisting of two/...

Polynomial simply means consisting of several terms, as opposed to binomial consisting of only two terms. In most cases, kerning is the spacing between pairs of characters (binomial). It is however possible and useful to apply kerning based on a larger string of characters (polynomial). This is called contextual kerning. (As far as I'm aware, the term ...

It looks an awful lot like Caslon Italic. There's many many versions of Caslon, so some might be closer than other. There is a version, Libre Caslon, in the LaTex catalogue

I've found that in general most sans-serif fonts are more legible than serif fonts when reading numbers. Serif fonts are more decorative and have varying line weights, so it's easier for characters to blend together and be harder to distinguish.

The only way to download Apple's San Francisco font is from the Apple developer website: https://developer.apple.com/fonts/ The font isn't licensed for any general use at all. Only paid members of Apple's developer program are allowed to download it and are only allowed to use it for screen mockups, nothing more. If you aren't an Apple developer you're ...

You have inherited a problematic situation. Consider that the separators also help with correct reading of the numerals. Now, have a look at the different kinds of separators. 508 886 60XX (spaces only) 508.886.60XX (points on baseline or centred) 508-886-60XX (hyphens) 508–886–60XX (en-dashes) (508) 886-60XX (traditional separators) Airing-out the ...

I agree with John Manly and Luciano. Not sure how else to make this work for a non-designer, other than finding a new font for them to use across the board instead of forcing two to work together. If you were trying to accomplish this in an Adobe program and not worrying about non-designers... I know that in InDesign, you are able to use Find/Replace to ...

There may not be angles that are considered preferred but it's common for angles to be used to create an unsettling response to the audience. Your question about the golden ratio would work the same way; if a pattern of geometry is repeated throughout nature, it is likely to be familiar with our psyche (comfortable). That familiarity is why coordinating ...

Many typefaces come in different variations, some may not be noticeably different at all. A lot of typefaces are released by a number of different foundries. The font may even just be in a different format with different naming. So the font you have may be a different variation of the same typeface, or it may even be the same typeface from a different source ...

I am a designer who recently started focusing on font design full-time. As a designer I struggled for years with fonts that behaved differently in different software, didn't group correctly, etc., so once I had the typography software, I spent hundreds of hours renaming font files just for organisational purposes for my own use. You might not want to hear ...

here are our requirements Open web font (free to use) Sans Serif As many variations and weights as possible Open Sans and Lato are similar fonts both fit that bill (though there are certainly others). They are both very readable fonts, having high x-heights and open counters like Ubuntu, but without the Dax-like joins that makes Ubuntu seem ...

This is more of a long comment: I dont know about proper in this context, but in more scientific literature ive seen it called straight skeleton.

1. What is the proper name of this type of strokes? The line itself would be called the centerline. There may be other or better terms depending on the context but that's what I would call it. 2. Are these lines used in font design? It depends. They certainly could be, but not necessarily. 3. do any font formats store this information along with ...

The article doesn't give you any formula or action to take with the alphabet length once you have it, it only states that is affects the optimum column width but suggests determining column width by word or character numbers. So, if the only reason you want to measure your alphabet width is because of that quote in the article, there's no need. If you do ...

Here's how The line length of the full alphabet in lower-case (miniscules) measured in ems is the easiest, fastest and most accurate way to compare fonts. In practice, about 30 ems has become the "best-practice" for line length. That works out to roughly two-and-a-half average-sized "alphabets." That works out to about 65 characters… on average, that is. ...

Yes, if you're missing fonts you'll either have to install them or replace them. InDesign will warn you of missing fonts in a couple of ways: It'll highlight text in pink: You'll be warned when you attempt to export the PDF You can use the Find Font dialogue box under Type > Find Font. This will list all the fonts used in the document, and flag any that ...

I don't use that software, but I see that your ascent height(s) are 969. Your ruler shows the top of your "H" at about 820. The discrepancy (about 140 units) is pretty close to the top margin in your screen capture. So you need to lower the ascent or enlarge the H so that the top of the letterform is at 969. Some of the margin may be the rendering engine ...

Font Metrics... Fonts have a UPM (Units Per Em) value that define their coordinates. The value is usually 1,000 for PostScript fonts and either 1,024 or 2,048 for TruType fonts but it doesn't have to be. In your 'font info' dialog your accent heights are set to 969 so at a guess the font UPM is probably 1,000. Try changing your accent and cap height to 1,...

Your letterform is aliased. It has become that way due to the way your letterform is displayed at the size you chose. The appearance is an artifact of the rasterization of the image. Supplying bitmaps for each font without hinting is a way to reduce the effect but will severely limit your display options to pixellated and jagged-looking letterforms wherever ...

You can use base-line shift on the specific letterforms to push letters above the baseline enough to eliminate them hanging below the baseline. There are "calculator" style digital fonts that use distorted letters with reduced vertical resolution to fit the limited display space.
